    Tim Berne's Snakeoil

    Painted Bride Art Center

    230 Vine Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106
    • Sunday April 15th 2018, 7:00pm to 9:00pm
    Tim Berne has been described as “a saxophonist and composer of granite conviction” by The New York Times. His spirited band, Snakeoil, is a potent blend of new voices and new ideas. Incidentals, the band’s fourth album, featuring clarinetist Oscar Noriega, pianist Matt Mitchell and drummer/vibraphonist Ches Smith is augmented by guitarist Ryan Ferreira. The music is characteristically action-packed in the Berne tradition: hypnotic, fast-moving, and teeming with detail.

    Snakeoil’s live show balances compositional rigor with fluid group improvisation. Hypnotic rhythms and long, seductive melodies collide with jagged dissonances and surprising textural shifts. A lush, organic blend of saxophones and clarinets is layered with acoustic keyboards and an ever-changing tapestry of percussion. Freedom and discipline, consonance and discord, past, present and future- all work together to power Tim Berne’s Snakeoil.
